It has been said that on average a wedding comes to the grand total of $26,000. This is an awful lot of cash to spend for what is essentially a big party for one day, albeit it is your big day. But what do you get for this money? Check it out.

• The rings, including engagement ring and wedding bands come to a total cost of $6400, so this is a sizeable chunk out of the $26,000 already.
• Next on the list of spending for the wedding was a deposit of $1300 for the hire of the venue for the wedding.
• There was no music with the hiring of the venue so another $600 deposit for a DJ was paid out.
• The dress for the bride came in at $2000 which is around average, while the shoes cost $250.
• The deposit for the florist was $850, which is an insane amount of money for flowers.
• The deposit for the catering came to $4300 as it wasn’t a huge wedding.
• Wedding dress alterations came it at $60.
• Two makeup trials at $120 and $160, neither of which the bride liked.
